And you thought Daniel Radcliffe getting erotic with horses was off-putting! Ew, actually it was. Why is Equus such a popular play? It makes The Woman In Black and that weird Guillermo Del Toro Pinocchio movie seem downright sunny! Continue his journey to the dark side, Entertainment Weekly dropped the first photo of a devilish looking DRad from Horns, a horror movie in which he plays Ignatius Perrish, a man consumed by the murder of his lady friend Merrin Williams…until one day wakes up with horns growing from his skull and the power to manipulate people. Then he’s probably really consumed by that murder. We’ll admit that detail of the horns sprouting from Daniel’s skull is disturbing, but somehow not as disturbing as his ensemble. The chest hair? The sweatshirt? The jacket? Did Ignatius wake up wearing that shiny leather bomber the same day he got the horns, or did he actually go to the mall and buy it at Nordstrom? Either option makes us wake up screaming in a cold sweat, and we’re not even asleep.
Based on the little we know about the movie, we’re betting Radcliffe nails it. Everyone know he’s at his best when he’s tangling with the supernatural side of things. Though maybe Daniel doesn’t realize that yet? “It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before,” Radcliffe tells EW. Really? But he’s already tangled with a ghost, battled a wizard and gotten into some horrible business in a barn! Isn’t this exactly like the parts he’s done before? Oh, you know what? Daniel must be talking about that jacket, too. Our bad!
